a bunch of researchers in india. if this burger comes from a cow that was grazed on land that once upon a time was rain forest we can factor in the loss ecoservice and that's just the footprint. that does not include the low wages that are paid in the food industry or fields where even today we have workers who are living in conditions of modern day slavery. they're growing the tomatoes that end up in our burgers. the $200 hamburger is just $200 because of the environmental costs. if we factor in the labor costs it would even be hire. >> gavin: you talk about a small number of companies and corporations that disproportionately impact the distribution of food. i want to talk about that, but first i want to challenge with this question. do we produce enough food to feed 6.8 be billion people. if we do, is it the distribution problem that gets bottled up with the decisions of a few companies. >> i want to quote greg page. he's the cargill. he said we produce more calories per person than ever before in human history. there is more food on the planet than there ever has been. there is not a

're searching citizens have a right to decide. all of europe, india, japan russia etc. >> eliot: it's terrifying that russia and china are ahead of us in terms of consumer disclosure. let us know if there is gmo in our food. what are the health effects of this genetically modified stuff. what is the science on that? how much data do we have that we can rely upon, we can't rely upon those who are marketing their own products. >> that is exactly the problem. the patent holders for these genetically modified crops they own these crops as i say they've been patented as uniquely theirs. the u.s. government does not require independent safety analysis for these crops to be approved. as you know perfectly well in washington where now $600 million has been sent by bio tech to lobby regulatory, to narrow the aperture for regulatory approval, it has basically been an industry-driven proposition. there have only been a couple of independent studies. one came out this summer, a peer review in france that smuggled genetically produced corn seed out of canada, and it was scary. i'm not arguing because of this
